The room is full of the most interesting people in the city, from diplomats and spies to fishmongers and thieves, but the man of the hour has not yet appeared. Al Dove never makes an early entrance. Finally, he swoops in to applause, his nut-brown California tan standing out in the sea of pale Parisian skin, and prepares for his moment in the spotlight. He unveils the painting, an ultrarare masterpiece from an enigmatic painter, and the room goes quiet. And then from the back, someone screams a horrible word: "Fake!" The room erupts into a riot, which Dove escapes only with the help of B. F. Cage, a tough-guy friend from the days when Al's last name was still Dovici. There is a counterfeiter at large in Paris, and finding him will draw Cage into a shadowy world of drugs, smuggling, and million-dollar murder.

If I Should Die Before I Die

by Peter Israel

To save his boss's wife, a clever lawyer must unmask a silent serial killer Another woman has died, just like all the others who have been targeted by the so-called pillow killer--her life snuffed out without a sound. He smothers each of them carefully, and they seem to go without struggle, as though the killer were their friend. As each new body is discovered, the women of New York come closer and closer to outright panic. Finally, one of them is about to fight back. Philip Revere is a few blocks away from his office, the stately brownstone of brilliant attorney Charles Camelot, when he sees his boss's wife sobbing outside Central Park. A sex therapist, Nora is convinced that one of her clients is the pillow killer, and she has begun to fear for her life. With Revere's help, she will do whatever it takes to put the culprit behind bars.

I'll Cry When I Kill You

by Peter Israel

An attorney tries to protect a science fiction writer from a galaxy of would-be killers Thirty minutes north of Central Park, Philip Revere finds himself in a world of spacious lawns, jogging suits, and extreme, unabashed wealth. He has come to confer with Raul Bashard, a titan of science fiction whose imminent death has been rumored for years. Revere represents Bashard's lawyer, Charles Camelot, an all-powerful attorney better known as the Counselor. Revere expects this to be nothing more than an errand--a contract dispute or a question of royalties--but Bashard has something deadly on his mind. After decades of being menaced by fans, Bashard has attracted the attention of a far more determined adversary: the Internal Revenue Service. Its attention has become so acute that the author has begun to fear for his life. Revere writes this off as artistic paranoia, but when Bashard is beaten to death in his sleep, the affair becomes a case only Camelot can solve.

Between Give and Take: A Clinical Guide to Contextual Therapy

by Ivan Krasner Boszormenyi-Nagy

In this volume, Boszormenyi-Nagy and Krasner provide a comprehensive, sharply focused guide to the clinical use of Contextual Therapy (CT) as a therapy rooted in the reality of human relationships. The authors describe a far-reaching trust-based approach to individual freedom and interpersonal fairness that makes possible a remarkably effective system of psychotherapy. Between Give and Take clearly delineates four basic dimensions of relational reality: factual predeterminants; human psychology; communications and transactions; and due consideration or merited trust. It is this last dimension that is the cornerstone of CT. It builds on the realm of the "between" that reshapes human relationships and liberates each relating person for mature living. In these pages the therapist will find a cohesive therapeutic approach that can be applied in every clinical setting. The volume examines such essential areas as the basic principles of CT and their implications for therapy; the four dimensions of the therapeutic process; the client-therapist dialogue; overcoming resistances in therapy; and therapeutic methods, illustrated by a detailed case presentation and discussion of contextual work with marriage. Between Give and Take represents the richly detailed integration of the authors' involvement over a collective period of some 40 years with the fundamental nature of effective therapy and prevention. It is addressed to therapists of all schools, modalities, and convictions, and incorporates experience with both psychodynamic individual therapy and systemic-classical family therapy. It is sure to enrich the therapeutic work of every clinician. Book jacket.
